The new president of the Back to Belmore residents' group said the proposed Sydney Multicultural Arts and Sports Precinct is crucial to the area.
Luke Cevolani, 29, was recently elected the president after the departure of Luke Brailey.
Mr Cevolani is a founding member of Back to Belmore, which was formed for the restoration and preservation of Belmore Sports Ground as a multi-purpose sporting facility.
He said it is imperative the State Government gets on board financially.
"This is extremely important and crucial that the funding is given to build the new precinct," he said.
"Any facility that can be built to serve the community and has the capacity to attract international visitors and boost the local economy and give the area positive recognition is great."
Mr Cevolani said they will continue to support the community.
"I'd like to support Luke (Brailey's) vision to run player clinics and training sessions, to be rolled out by 2015-16, and offer financial suuport for those talented players who are struggling." he said.
